Bishop's  Message

Dear Fathers, Brothers and Sisters,
Greetings from Bishop’s House, Balasore!

“Let days speak, and many years teach wisdom” (Job 32:7).
The one who made this statement in the Bible is Elihu, a character in the Book of Job, who had come to explain the reason for Job’s suffering. As the story goes Job, probably one of the best known characters in the Bible, has undergone sufferings of various types – physical, mental and social – and these have in fact taught him to be strong and to be hopeful. Experience is a great teacher; and more of it, as we grow older, makes us wiser. Time is educatory. Every day has its lessons so arranged that we could learn from it. The ‘days’ by their pedagogical processes should throw brighter light on the problems of life and provide us with a sense of hope. As we step out of the year 2015 and step into 2016, we look back and try to learn from the lessons taught by the past year, and look forward with hope to the new one. Read More....

History of the Diocese

The Present Ecclesiastical territory of Balasore, Comprising the 4 civil Districts : Bhadrak, Balasore, Mayurbhanj and Keonjhar of Orissa State, was under the Archdiocese of Calcutta until 1968.Though the origin of Christianity in this part of North East Orissa can be traced back to 1514 with a Portuguese settlement in Pippilli, Balasore got a resident Priest in the person of Fr. Sapport S.J. only in 1865. He had built a beautiful church (Lal Girja) in Balasore and had started a Foundling Home, which later was looked after by the Daughters of the Cross (DC). Fr Sapport S.J. was said to be the Pioneer Missionary of Balasore. In 1915, the Daughters of St. Joseph of Chembery had arrived and opened a Convent and a School in Balasore which was functioning until 1938.  Read More....
